Before the year 2007, Bill Roper was beloved by PC gamers, due to his work on Warcraft, Diablo and StarCraft. Then in 2003 Roper left Blizzard to co-found Flagship Studios, and began working on Hellgate: London. When Hellgate was released, the high hopes of many PC gamers were crushed, and Roper went from beloved to reviled.
Until recently Roper was the Executive Producer of Cryptic Studios' MMO Champions Online. He took a break from fielding job offers to answer a few questions.
